15 Tweets About Life In Your Thirties That Are Accurate AF

Entering your thirties can be a trying time in life. The initial celebration is great and all, who doesn’t love a dirty 30?

But then reality sinks in. You are THIRTY. You’re no longer young, carefree and in your twenties. But at least you’re flirty, thirty and thriving; can I get a HECK YEAH!?

It’s easy to say that thirty is the new twenty, but that doesn’t alter the way the body works.

Hangovers are still ten-million times worse at this point in life, and not to mention, your metabolism doesn’t seem to be working as fast as it once did – love handles, anyone? (At least high-waisted jeans are back in style!)

Of course, there are positives to being in your thirties. You’re finally getting somewhere with your career, you’re making enough money to pay all your bills and at least there’s always Botox for those wrinkles that are starting to set in on your forehead.

Post-thirty hangovers SUCK.

When I was in my early twenties, I didn’t even know what a hangover was! I could drink all night and then wake up the next morning ready to tackle the day.

Hangovers aside, there are some reasons to get excited about being thirty-something.

Some research suggests that people aren’t their happiest until they reach the ripe, wise age of 33.

70 percent of respondents forty years and older said they didn’t feel truly happy until they reached 33 years old.

According to psychologist Donna Dawson: “The age of 33 is enough time to have shaken off childhood naiveté and the wild scheming of teenaged years without losing the energy and enthusiasm of youth.”

She added: “By this age, innocence has been lost, but our sense of reality is mixed with a strong sense of hope, a can-do spirit, and a healthy belief in our own talents and abilities.”

Only sixteen percent of respondents said they were happiest in childhood and six percent pinned college as their happiest years.

Respondents said that the majority of their happiness came from fulfillment in their professional lives, along with a supportive network of family and friends.

  • You’re making more money and have more stability in your day-to-day life

  • This is your time to carve out the future you want – the world is your oyster!
